For my first review, Metal Memories was gracious enough to pass along a few products for me to see (and also has provided a Tiny Tag Locket OR a Rectangle Tiny Tag Necklace as a Give Away item).
Here is some background on Metal Memories. Metal Memories is a 1 Mom show. Pam is currently a SAHM of 2. L who is 2 years 8 months and C who is almost 6 months. She began Metal Memories to create beautiful pieces to showcase your family in a unique way. There are many items available; all are hand made and hand created by Pam. In making her custom pieces, Metal Memories uses sterling silver, copper, brass, and nickel silver. The ideas are endless for the perfect custom piece for anyone in your family. Moms, Dads, Grandmothers & Grandfathers and any one you can think of (even your family pet). Metal Memories is always willing to work with you if you cannot find the piece that you are looking for on the website. Metal Memories is based out of Alberta, Canada.
Now to the nitty-gritty. The first product that was passed along was a Gum Drop Bottle Cap. This bottle cap was an unused bottle cap that had the Metal Memories logo in it. (But it can be made to any custom picture that you wish). It has a strong magnet attached to the back that can be used on your fridge or in a locker. (Like Metal Memories mentioned, anyone can benefit from the great items!!) This Gum Drop Bottle Cap Magnet looks like a beautiful flower staring at you from your fridge. It is very pleasing to they eye. I would defiantly recommend the Gum Drop Bottle Cap Magnet. This would work great for a chore list on your fridge with a cute picture of everyone in your family. I have to also mention that the packaging for this item was very professional. It came in an organza pouch packaged in its own cellophane bag attached to a cardstock paper with ideas on how to use it. Very professional looking would be perfect as a gift, as it is ready to Give!
The second item, which I might add also came beautifully packaged in an organza bag, cellophane bag and attached to a card stock paper highlighting the piece was a Mixed Tiny Tag Necklace. This necklace came on a standard chain, which complimented it perfectly as it is very elegant. The Tiny Tags were left blank, but can easily be hand stamped with any initial. They also came with 4mm birthstone Swarovski drop crystals. This piece would and does look great with any outfit. It is elegant, casual and fun all in one.
The final piece that was passed along was a Rustic Washer. This was made from a stainless steel washer; it came on a hemp cord necklace. Hand stamped with the words “LIVE.LAUGH.LOVE” it is the perfect causal piece. The Rustic Washer can be hand stamped with any names or quotes that you like; it can also come without the hemp cord. These Rustic Washers are also sold in bulk from Metal Memories and make great thank you gifts for any occasion. They came in a cellophane bag attached to cardstock. There are also great ideas listed that they can be used for, my favourite is the pocket token, something that you can put in your pocket that is a visual and textural reminder.
My overall experience with Metal Memories was great. Great customer service, asking questions to achieve the perfect product in the end. Great shipping prices, only $3 in Canada just to cover the cost of the envelope and stamp. Products were professionally packaged. Products were exactly as described and even more beautiful in person. Metal Memories is highly recommended as a product that is What U Love!
